The Center for Career Development sponsors a number of career expos during the academic year to assist you in your search for internships, full-time and part-time work. The fairs are open to Duquesne University students and alumni wishing to break away from the often anonymous on-line application process and meet face-to-face with multiple companies in one convenient location.
